Zoo Trip Mayhem

We were recently called for a fuel drain in the Longton area of Stoke-on-Trent. This poor chap had hired a Transit minibus for the day, to take his children and there friends to Chester Zoo during the summer holidays. Even though he usually only drives a diesel, he had somehow managed to put in 30 litres of unleaded into the minibus before realising his mistake. Read more at -

Misfuel On A Landover Freelander

Mr Braithwaite left his home in Ipswich for the 30 minute trip to Colchester stopping only for Fuel. You guessed it... he accidentally put £35 of petrol in his diesel Freelander before he noticed it was not diesel. Luckily a customer on the filling stations forecourt suggested he give Fuel Doctor a call for some advice. Read more at -

Wrong Fuel in Ford Transit

Taxi driver Ray had just taken a couple to Luton Airport from Stevenage he had dropped them off at the terminal then stopped to fill his tank ready for his busy night ahead.
Ray left the filling station in his Ford Transit Minibus without a problem, he even made it to Hitchin, Hertfordshire some 15 miles away before the minibus started to jump. Ray wasn’t sure why and called his breakdown company as the transit had by this time grinded to a halt. He was asked if had filled up recently and asked to check his receipt. Yes it was Petrol in his Diesel Transit!
Ray was told it would cost him around £1500 to put right and would have to be towed to a garage losing his minibus for a week.
Fortunately, his Taxi office advised him to call Fuel Doctor for some honest advice and prompt action. 90 minutes and just £145 later Ray was on his way Letchworth for his next pickup!
Ray was over the moon following the horror stories he has heard from other taxi drivers who have miss-fuelled, Ray tells me he will be extra careful when selecting between Petrol and Diesel in future!
